Experience this half-day tour either on a morning or afternoon departure. Listen to the history of the war, the ingenuity of the Cu Chi residents and the daily activities of the residents of the tunnels.



     At either 8am or 12:30pm your private tour guide and car will pick you up from your hotel and take you North West to the Cu Chi Tunnels which are 70kms away. This is an area where Vietnamese people proudly held their ground during the Vietnam war (in Vietnam it is known as The American War). Over 200kms of underground tunnels were made, the trip will help you understand the struggle the Vietnamese would have gone through on the frontline. It took an enormous amount of ingenuity, courage and imagination to match the enemy and these tunnels were a big part of the Vietnam War and ended being a resounding victory for the Cu Chi people.

The tunnel system, fortifications and trenches were a part of a soldiers life, you will see how they lived, the kitchens, store rooms, hospital, living quarters. You can crawl around parts of the tunnel yourself and watch a video of the history of the Vietnam War in this area and you also have chance to shoot many kind of guns (AK-47) on the shooting range (extra charge).

Cu Chi Tunnel Half Day Tour with Natalie
Review of: Cu Chi Tunnels half day private tour from Ho Chi Minh City
“Cu Chi Tour was the highlight of our Indochina Trip as we were able to experienced being inside the tunnels. Our group was the only one who tried the 50m tunnel during the tour. Our tour guide, Natalie, gave us all the information we need to know about Cu Chi. She also reached with everyone of us inside the bus, asked how are we and where are we from. She also gave us tips on how to explore Ho Chi Minh. After the tour, they also provided snacks (cassava and tea) which is really good. Overall, it was a nice experience. We reached Ben Thanh Market at around 3pm which gave us ample time to still shop and have a city tour.”

Fascinating Tour
Review of: Private Half-Day Cu Chi Tunnels Tour from Ho Chi Minh City
We had a private tour with a guide called Field, who was brilliant. He took great care in explaining everything to us, and answering our questions about life in Vietnam generally. We saw big tourist groups at the Cu Chi Tunnels and felt that we got more out of the experience through being in a small group, and felt extremely lucky in having the intelligent guide we did.

Cu chi with ‘Japan’
Review of: Private Half-Day Cu Chi Tunnels Tour from Ho Chi Minh City
Cu Chi Tunnels was the site my partner Ben wanted to visit most as we were planning for this Honeymoon trip. It lived up to every expectation, he also got to experience an AK.
We were greeted by Japan and his driver at the hotel. Both friendly with a great smile. The ride to Cu Chi is not long so it really pays to travel in the comfort of a private car.
Japan is our guide, he is young but knowlegable, he is also kind about a request we had. We appreciate the preparation he had with the photos and the history stories.
Thank yoh for making the last day at Vietnam fun and memorable.

Cu Chi Tunnels – private half day tour
My wife and I did a private tour of the tunnels, Owen was our guide. Owen was very knowledgeable and passionate about his profession. We asked him a ton of questions throughout the day, from general questions about the tunnels and the war to general Vietnam culture.
Very valuable experience and I would highly recommend.

Cu Chi tunnels with Thanh
We had a fabulous time visiting the tunnels with this company. Thanh was AWESOME!! He met us directly at our hotel and guided us through every step of the way. He is a history major also, so he knew a lot about the history of the tunnels. He was very personable and enjoyable to be with. We would highly recommend him again!!!

14 - November- 2018

Cu Chi with Thanh
Thanh was a fantastic tour guide! Was knowledgeable and accommodating. Transport was punctual and quick and even dropped us off at the airport after the tour!

Cu chi tunnels half day trip
We were a group of four and had a nice experience at the Cu chi tunnels. There were alot of tourists there, but our guide, Owen, was good at guiding us past the large groups. Took some time before we ctually got to go in the tunnels, but that is just how the attraction is built. Our guide, Owen, knew his stuff, was good in english and very friendly. Would recommend this company and Owen for a day trip the Cu Chi tunnels.

24 - September- 2018

Must see
This is a must see when in Vietnam to fully understand the conditions so many people lived under the war. Our guide, Dai (Owen) was fantastic from start to end! Very knowledgeble, easy to talk to and all around fun to hang out with. He took great care if us making sure we did all the activities we wanted, like shooting the rifles, and that we had water, snacks and paper towels to wipe our sweaty faces with. He made our visit even more memorable. It is a bit crowded and busy with some groups of tourists being auper loud, but that is expected and was not really a big issue

Half day tour in Co Chi tunnels
My tour guide , Vincent Le from Roadstour Vietnam was really friendly , speaks fluent enhlish, knowledgeable, funny and service oriented.
He provided good explanation and made the entire experience a memorable one.
I would recommend Roadstour Vietnam as the travel company and Vince as the tour guide for all first time and to Vietnam and especially to Co Chi Tunnels near Ho Chi Minh.

11 - August- 2018

Thanh was a great guide. His knowledge of history due to his university studies meant he could explain everything in depth. Thanh had a good sense of humour a and good English. I recommend this tour and company.

Cu chi tunnels

Vince was an excellent and personable guide who gave us constant information and facts about the tour and many other things. The tour moved well at a pace suited to us and vince organised for us to be dropped off at the museum afterwards, gave us advice on places to eat etc. Thanks Vince

25 - July- 2018

Vince was great!
We loved this tour! After doing a few group tours we decided to sprig for the private tour. Our guide Vince was a bright young man who was fun and knowledgeable. We stopped for Vietnamese coffee on the way to the tunnels. When we got to the tunnels Vince kept the tour moving, hit all the sites, and made sure we avoided the crowds. We did the 100 meter crawl which was intense and fun. On the way home, we had a special request to be dropped off at a famous lunch spot instead of our hotel. Vince organized this on a whim, and even joined us for lunch. If you want to feel like less of a tourist and use your time wisely- spring for the private tour.

Good tour
Review of: Private Half-Day Cu Chi Tunnels Tour from Ho Chi Minh City

Very good tour. Thanh was a very knowledgeable guide with a background in History studies so a top guide to have on this tour. He was on time and very friendly and the car was very nice.

19 - January- 2018

Really helpful company and unmissable place

We booked this tour at the last minute, yet Roadstour Vietnam couldn’t have been more helpful with the booking and payment. We needed a pick up from the airport, and a drop back to a hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and this was no trouble at all. As the tunnels are out past the airport, this is a great way to do the trip.
Our guide was OK, nothing more than that, although she answered all of our questions. One of the guides at the tunnels was so enthusiastic, telling his group loads of information with passion. Our guide really brightened up towards the end of the tour when she could play with the cats in the shop. The tunnels themselves were great, providing a real and shocking insight into life for the Viet cong. I would definitely recommend this tour and this company.

Great Trip to CuChi tunnel and Great Tour-guide

We booked a trip to Cuchi tunnel for 5th July 8.30am for three of my friends and me, and I can safely say that we all went off very satisfied.

CuChi Tunnel — The trip to CuChi tunnel is a must for all travellers to Ho Chi Minh. It will show you so much of the ingenuity and tenacity the vietcong guerilla possessed that it will make you go “Wahhh” over and over again. It will leave you a lot more culturally and historically informed than if you go to other museums. It is also definitely more interesting since you get to see and explore first hand the tunnels used by the vietcong by climbing through them.You will also get to fire either M-16 or AK-47 for a fee (about 400,000 dong for a packet of 10 rounds)

Our Tour Guide (Nhi) — The trip would not have been as interesting without our tour guide — Nhi. She was not only extremely knowledgeable, but also very funny, hospitable, helpful, and friendly. If you are the kind who is afraid of awkward moment, you should definitely pick this tour because she can always find something interesting to talk about/ do.
We even became friends after the tour and met to have dinner together the next day!

If you are looking for a tour that involves more than just a simple explanation of the history and artifacts, and instead involve making new friends and getting to know the local culture from the locals, you should pick Roadstour Vietnam.

Friendly tour guide

I went on a half day trip with three of my friends to cu chi tunnels. The tour guide ms nhi was very friendly. She had kept us engaged throughout the tour and her knowledge of the attraction had left me with a good impression of the attraction . She also shared snippets of the vietnMdse culture with us to get me to understand the local customs better. Kudos to the services and I enjoyed the tour very much

1/2 Day Cu Chi Tunnel Tour… Best Car in Vietnam and Knowledgeable Guide

He lived it! Literally, Mr. Ryan was a civil servant for the Southern Vietnamese back in the day and remembers it all very well. Has solid knowledge as a guide although perhaps not as polished as someone who may have gone to school for it. He’s fluent in English and French and quick to engage and converse in either. His car (new Chevy sedan w/ leather interior) and driver are the best we had in all of Vietnam.

Hired his services for a private 1/2 day trip to Cu Chi Tunnels as his was one of the best prices we rcvd (price incl. admission to Cu Chi). You’ll want a guide for this experience as there’s really no signage around the attractions. He covered everything at a high-level and went into more detail if you inquired. Left the hotel promptly at 8AM and returned by 12.30PM. A day well spent.

10 - October- 2017

Professional service and Good car for Chu Chi Tunnel and HCMC Tour
Before we made a booking, we communicated via email with Ryan The Manager and he was very helpful to accommodate our request and giving solution. I gave him the list of tourist destinations and he arranged the destination in order complete with the estimated time. The driver greeted us in the airport and i found the car was very comfortable also clean. His accounting staff came to our hotel with wireless EDC Machine to settle the payment and i believe this is an Excellence Service!! I didn’t need to go to the office so I can save my time a lot. Even though we were not accompanied by the guide but we can have all destinations as planned since the driver knew all destinations. I am confident to recommend this company to everyone

10 - October- 2017

Tout simplement parfait.
Je suis parti en voyage solo au Vietnam et ai eut recours à cette organisation.
Tout simplement parfait, guide sérieux et serviable, très gentil et qui a su répondre à toutes mes questions.
Pour mon prochain séjour, je repasserai par cette agence les yeux fermés !

28 - August- 2017

Our guide, Viet, was really great. His English was good and his knowledge was vast. Not just of the areas we visited, but of South East Asia and its history. I would definitely recommend this trip and if you’re lucky enough to get Viet as your guide, then you’ll be assured of a great day.

We did the 1/2 day tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels and we were very impressed with the entire process. The booking was very easy, and received emails confirming the payment and tour immediately. We were picked up by our guide Nhi Nguyen at our hotel. We had intended to return to the hotel after the tour, but when we told Nhi the flight times, she advised we should take our bags with us and organised a drop-off at the airport. The trip to the tunnels was busy, but we had a great trip. All the way Nhi pointed out sights and gave very good information. During the tunnel tour, Nhi was an excellent guide and we enjoyed a very personal tour experience. There were many tour buses there that day, so picking a private tour was a very good choice. If you are interested in doing a tour and learning more about the history of the area during the war, this is a great way to learn. I can highly recommend this tour, and especially recommend Nhi and her company Roadstour Vietnam. Nhi has a great personality, very helpful and her English is excellent.

Friendly and helpful guide. Interesting to find out about the tunnels and an interesting (but long) drive to get there.
